In 1985, Jack Ingram put his mark on another championship season with five victories in what was then known as the NASCAR Busch Series.

One of those wins came at The Milwaukee Mile in West Allis, Wis.  On Aug. 18 of that year, Ingram started eighth and finished first to claim the third of those five race wins which helped propel the future Hall of Famer to his second Busch Series championship in four years and fifth overall.

Rick Mast finished second with Jimmy Hensley, Dale Jarrett and Tommy Houston completing the top five.

Ingram would go on to win two more times in 1985, posting back-to-back victories at North Wilkesboro and Rougemont, N.C., in September.  He would beat Hensley by 29 points in the final championship standings.

Ingram was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in January of this year and is fifth all-time on the list of race winners with 31.  The Busch Series is known today as the NASCAR Nationwide Series, which last competed at Milwaukee in 2009.
